When we talk about natural diuretics we mean those products that, while stimulating diuresis, do so in a gentle and natural way.

Among the first diuretics available in nature there are several foods that can be integrated into everyday nutrition. Among these are, for example, artichokes, pineapple and watermelon . If we are talking about strong natural diuretics, however, we must move on to herbs to drink in the form of decoctions or on specific supplements that help alleviate the problem of retention.

For example, a powerful natural diuretic is dandelion which can be taken in the form of herbal tea or decoction and which among other things helps the liver to purify itself. Another effective natural diuretic, this time in the form of a supplement, is pilosella . Excellent for relieving the kidneys of their load and for expelling certain toxins.
To the many remedies is also added the gotu kola, often used to fight cellulite.

How to take diuretics

Diuretics in the form of decoctions or herbal teas can be taken once or twice a day, possibly after meals or in the evening. As for supplements , the best choice is always to stick to what is written on the packaging. In any case, it is good to keep in mind that when you have any health problem it is important to investigate thoroughly to combat it. And this also applies to water retention .

The diuretics mentioned above, therefore, should be taken for a limited period of time beyond which, if the problem does not disappear, it is necessary to talk to the doctor . Sometimes, in fact, it is enough to work on nutrition or lifestyle to make sure that everything works perfectly. Otherwise, it is essential to understand the reason for certain problems. Only in this way, in fact, can we hope to resolve them definitively.
